A notoriously innovative industry, adult entertainment has survived and thrived through every technological disruption. Kate Darling researches how the copying and sharing of digital files over the Internet has posed new challenges for content producers, effectively eliminating their copyright protection. But rather than destroy all incentive for production, this change has driven companies to reinvent their business models. Amidst some struggles, the U.S. industry has quickly shifted toward selling services and interactive experience goods, while continuing to create traditional content as a loss leader.
